This is a lovely old hotel with lots of charm. The rooms are a bit dated, but we were told that they are slowly refurbishing. The lobby bar area (which has been refurbished) was cozy and warm, but a little bit quiet. It could do with some music!
Our dinner there was second-to-none. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We were served by a lovely young Australian lady who, apparently, is only new. She was wonderfully helpful in assisting with dietary questions (I have allergies) and seemed genuinely interested in how we enjoyed our meal (A special thanks to the chef who also changed his dishes for me). She is a real credit to the hotel (please pass on my thanks!).
Breakfast was lovely and fresh. The staff seemed a little unorganised but maybe it was because there was no manager (I couldn't see one). However, we got everything we wanted.
I can't wait to come back when the rooms are finished!
